What age to start solids?
Ok, I'm not a new mom here so this is going to sound odd. I am on my third kiddo so you'd think I'd be a semi-expert by now. NOPE! My 2nd and 3rd are 14 months apart and I still feel like I have no clue what I am doing. Anyway, the baby is almost 4 months and she is hungry ALL-THE-TIME. She takes 5oz and then still wants more. So, she's been having about 8-9 oz at night before bed and she STILL wakes up hungry 3 hours later. I think I need to start solids like ASAP. But, is it too soon? Everything I read says 4 months but by golly I'm about to lose my mind with waking up 2-3 x/night to give her a bottle. What are your thoughts?
Also.. an article I would love to share that I am keen on... is NOT starting with white rice cereal.. I work for a doctor and have head the downfalls in doing so.. and the benefits of starting with solid foods other than the typical white rice! :)
Every child is different. Is she showing interest in food when you all are eating? My oldest son at 6 months was reaching for my fork and plate and he didn't push out the food when I fed it to him either.
